2:13 am
jillibus

I have pr4/6 and 5/14 from there, dee
2:14 am
rbud

me too, I have 3 from there, have hunted for the last one for ages. ph 7 is from there
2:15 am
VolleymomDee

aww so I am missing the ph 7 then
2:15 am
jillibus

just got the other pr4
2:16 am
VolleymomDee

ty jili; rb got it... rb starts with 3 consonants
2:17 am
jillibus

I know about the ph7 -- it was clued a while ago but I didn't understand the clue :(
2:19 am
VolleymomDee

def of the ph 7: Anatomy. of or pertaining to the diaphragm.
2. Physiology. relating to the mind
2:19 am
VolleymomDee

it's an adjective
2:20 am
rbud

I think the same root word has to do with reading the bumps on one's head
2:20 am
VolleymomDee

aww I think you may be correct
2:21 am
jillibus

got it -- thanks! All I could think of was that business about feeling the bumps on people's heads -- ph***ology
2:21 am
VolleymomDee

lol
2:21 am
jillibus

gmta, rbud!
2:21 am
rbud

there we were, in the same place, jilli! lol
2:22 am
VolleymomDee

is there more than one re 7?
2:23 am
rbud

yes, 2
2:23 am
VolleymomDee

ty I figured there must be
2:24 am
MonkeyGames

One's a plural. And hi again.
2:24 am
rbud

one is a digestive enzyme, (re6/7) and one is to answer
2:25 am
MonkeyGames

Still missing a T. Is there a weird one? Besides the Ethiopian flour(s), I mean?
2:25 am
VolleymomDee

ty ty totally missed the second one... I doubt if I would have found that one
2:26 am
VolleymomDee

any more than 3 up's?
2:26 am
MonkeyGames

I only have 2 so can't help with that one...
2:26 am

OK, how about the H on the left? I have a 4-letter word from it. Are they both 4's?
2:29 am
VolleymomDee

ty so much neb that will help me find my missing 1
2:29 am
VolleymomDee

hi 4/5 x 2
2:29 am

Thanks!

2:30 am

I don't think I have ever seen the up 6's before; ty neb!
2:31 am
MonkeyGames

Ooooh, hadn't thought to try ending one THAT way...
2:31 am
VolleymomDee

:)
2:33 am
jillibus

can't think of a digestive enzyme starting with re. Years ago I learned pepsin, trypsin, and amylopsin -- we made a silly sentence of those words.
2:33 am
MonkeyGames

It's used in cheese making, derived from cow stomachs.
2:34 am
MonkeyGames

Usually ends -et, but not in his case...
2:34 am
MonkeyGames

Oh yes, that is also here, sorry...
2:34 am
VolleymomDee

there is an re 6/18 ending that way
2:34 am
MonkeyGames

Yeah, my oops. Same enzyme.
2:35 am
VolleymomDee

:)
2:35 am
jillibus

and the ingredient in Junket, if you're old enough to remember that
2:35 am
VolleymomDee

ty both... found an se 6 cuz of that :)
2:35 am
MonkeyGames

I'm old enough to have had a grandmother who collected that...
2:36 am
MonkeyGames

SE? Cool, looking...
2:36 am
MonkeyGames

Walter is feeling better after the shower and his snack.
2:36 am
VolleymomDee

so good to hear; didn't know he had chicken pox... you on the end or at the beginning?
2:37 am
jillibus

I still have an old packet of Junket!
2:37 am
VolleymomDee

funny jili
2:37 am
MonkeyGames

Third day. Yesterday was the first fever, and the itching hasn't started... hope it never does...
2:37 am
VolleymomDee

I have heard of it... what is it for (junket)
2:38 am
VolleymomDee

benelyn cough syrup used to be one of the things you could use for itching; lukewarm baths or showers like you mentioned
2:38 am
jillibus

it makes a sort of jelled milk dessert, very comforting for a sick kid
2:38 am
rbud

our daughter had chicken pox when we used to live in florida, I let her play in her little wading pool all day, it worked well.
2:39 am
VolleymomDee

put mittens on our daughter's hands a couple of nite's when she slept to keep her from scratching her face, but we were lucky and had a light case
2:39 am
VolleymomDee

aww didn't know that jili
2:39 am
VolleymomDee

I felt awful; we didn't know Lindz had been exposed, and we exposed her entire Sunday school class...
2:39 am
MonkeyGames

Yeah, as soon as the sun hits the deck I'll be filling up buckets: he likes to splash the water around and get really wet while watering the plants. So far no itching though. I have a large bottle of calendula tincture waiting...
2:40 am
VolleymomDee

came home in afternoon after lunch; got ready to put her down for her nap and found them on her tummy
2:40 am
VolleymomDee

sounds like you are all ready to go
2:40 am
jillibus

I got chickenpox in NY when I was 8 and we were booked to leave for England in a couple of days. Only got about 3 spots and hid them.
2:40 am
VolleymomDee

wow
2:41 am
mama2maddie

very strange...the words from the h and f on the left side are not registering on the word list or on the tile stats, but it says i have already entered the word....
2:41 am
jillibus

try refreshing, mama2
2:41 am
mama2maddie

time to refresh
2:41 am
VolleymomDee

I have had that happen before
2:41 am
MonkeyGames

Got him up Friday and found them on his back. We'd already had a letetr from the school that it's going around. He didn't feel so bad Friday so after his visit to the doctor o confirm, he was able to attend a party day at school. But now he won't be going tomorrow and he'll be missing the charity walks he's been looking forward to.
2:42 am
jillibus

Poor little Walter :(
2:42 am
mama2maddie

all better...:)
2:43 am
VolleymomDee

surprising; our schools make you take them out of school until they have scabbed and are almost healed
2:43 am
VolleymomDee

welcome back mama
2:43 am
mama2maddie

ty
2:43 am
jillibus

good, mama!
2:44 am
MonkeyGames

Yes Jilli, this is a yearly big deal and this was to be the first year he really knew anything about it. Lots of hype at school and all. He really wants to go, but he has fever today and in order to go he would have to go to school for a full day tomorrow and then go in the evening for the walk until way past bedtime. I am vetoing it. And Volley, here they don't do that. The letter from the school, and the doctor, pointedout that by the time a kid shows spots, the entire class has already been exposed. Another kid is all over spotty as well, and has been in class.
2:45 am
VolleymomDee

interesting; makes sense I suppose that they have already been exposed
2:46 am
MonkeyGames

The virus is contaius for 1 - 3 days before the first spot appears. I have been advised to try to keep him away from newborns and pregnant women; that won't be difficult.
2:47 am
VolleymomDee

and old people who have autoimmune issues (because of shingles)
2:47 am
VolleymomDee

the poor teacher must be going nuts
2:48 am
MonkeyGames

True. But anyway he's still too unwell now to go out anyway, so it's not an issue. When he CAN go out I can scout the supermarket from my window-- it's very small.
2:49 am
MonkeyGames

The teacher is taking it with aplomb. We all just got through a 5th disease outbreak as well. It's a small school with great staff. She has lots of calendula cream, and she only has 18 kids to keep track of, and only a couple have pox.
2:49 am
VolleymomDee

hopefully since it is starting off like it is, it will me easy going like our daughter's; she had a grand time watching movies and being pampered :)
2:49 am
VolleymomDee

remind me what 5th disease is
2:50 am
MonkeyGames

Walter HATES being sick, but he's handling it OK, except that the cable company just accidentally scrambled his favorite TV channel (they usually get that sorted out pretty quickly though).
2:50 am
VolleymomDee

yipes
2:50 am
MonkeyGames

5th is a harmless childhood one that causes cold-like symptoms, a slapped-cheeks look, and a weird lacy kind of rash on the arms and legs.
2:51 am
MonkeyGames

Later today we will be starting work on the book we will be making from a story Walter has composed about a rabbit that lives on the moon.
2:51 am
VolleymomDee

I have heard of it... how long does it last?
2:51 am
VolleymomDee

odd name for a disease
2:52 am
VolleymomDee

aww sweet
2:52 am
MonkeyGames

5th? The illness lasts a few days but the rash comes and goes for weeks.
2:52 am
VolleymomDee

that's not fun
2:53 am
MonkeyGames

The rash causing childhood diseases were numbered in the old days. Can't remember which is which except I think chicken pox is #3.
2:53 am
MonkeyGames

The 5th rash doesn't itch or anything, it just looks kind of startling.
2:54 am
VolleymomDee

very interesting; our daughter is now 26 years old, so I have lost track of all the childhood diseases
2:54 am
VolleymomDee

I bet
2:54 am
MonkeyGames

I can see how you would. Until grandchildren, anyway...
2:54 am
VolleymomDee

hopefully some day.... :)
2:55 am
MonkeyGames

I was 36 when I had Walter, so don't give up hope.
2:55 am
VolleymomDee

aw ty ... praying for that "great" son-in-law now
2:56 am
MonkeyGames

And on that one it took me two tries... first marriage lasted two years. After that I met my soul mate and we just had our 16th anniversary.
2:56 am
VolleymomDee

our daughter is so self sufficient; strong willed; tall; successful at her job; owns her own home, so I think she scares some beaus off :)
2:56 am
VolleymomDee

fantastic congrats!
2:57 am
MonkeyGames

The right one will come along.
2:57 am
MonkeyGames

Thanks!
2:57 am
VolleymomDee

she will make such a fantastic mom; always has adored kids and all of those she babysat for loved her to pieces
2:58 am
VolleymomDee

congrats, too, on your degree; I have never heard of that one
2:58 am
MonkeyGames

Great! Too many of these go-getter success women just don't seem interested, and then they have kids for the wrong reasons and treat them like accessories. Very glad she's not like that.
2:59 am
VolleymomDee

so true
2:59 am
MonkeyGames

Thanks, yeah, it's a Dutch degree and so far is not doing me a lot of good uin the job hunt.... I picked it because it's very broad, but then everywhere I go says it's not focussed narrowly enough on what they do there. Sigh.
2:59 am
VolleymomDee

that stinks
3:00 am
VolleymomDee

did you tell them they could train you for their specific needs; you are a fast learner :)
3:00 am
MonkeyGames

We'll get through it. But it's being a tad stressful, to say the least. Meanwhile, Walter has just set himself up on the floor now with my sheepskin as a bed, and his blanket and pillow.
3:00 am
VolleymomDee

aww
3:01 am
VolleymomDee

fireworks
3:01 am
MonkeyGames

Oh yes, that's also in my CV, but the job market sucks so badly they all get plenty of applicants with "better" degrees and more experience.
3:01 am
MonkeyGames

YAY FOR YOU!!!
3:01 am
BabbleRabble

which is rather disingenuous since most companies will train you for their specific needs
3:01 am
VolleymomDee

true here right now, too. Thanks!
3:01 am
MonkeyGames

Meanwhile fingers crossed, please-- I did just apply for a job with the department of justice that DOES fit well with the degree.

True BabRab, but the eperience thing really caps it off. There are drawbacks to spending a lot of years on the immigration process...

I expect the economy has made it an employer's market
3:03 am

Oh yes. They can be VEEERRRRYYY choosy right now.

OK, while Walter is on an "up" and can entertain himself for a bit, I'd better get laundry on and stuff. I'll be in and out here. Thanks for the crossed fingers for me and sympathies for the wee monkey! Have fun!

In a different context, Mark Twain said: Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and excusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may.

I do give this computer credit though

It's been used and abused and treated like crap but it keeps on ticking

9:07 am
Rushie

Back with more coffee.
9:07 am
mom2han8

Oh, he is on board with that... but since we are going to spend the $$$ I figure get a laptop instead of the freestanding.
9:08 am
mom2han8

But he is not that familiar with them, so it will be a long research process... he is coming around though!
9:08 am
dafunk

dont really blame you on that, i have one and i sold my desktop. used it 2 times a year
9:08 am

9:09 am
Pinikula

Dell has some good deals going right now (it's their 25th anniversary sale)
9:09 am
mom2han8

hi pini
9:09 am
mom2han8

My brother in law is a computer guy and he said to stay away from Dell... said I can get the same basic stuff several hundred cheaper than Dell.
9:10 am
mom2han8

Anyway, I know next to nothing so I have to listen to him!
9:10 am
Rushie

Yeah, if it was up to me I'd save up about $2,000-2,500 and build one myself
9:10 am
beachboggle

I have gotten all my computers etc from Dell for a long time/ no probs yet
9:10 am
dafunk

i like toshiba myself. or if i did have a desktop, i built it myself
9:11 am
Rushie

I'd probably make mine with 16GB of RAM and a 25mbps download speed
9:11 am
Pinikula

Really? I'm looking at one that $549 for 3GB Mem; 250GB HD; 15" monitor
9:11 am
mom2han8

My husband and brother in law built/then upgraded this one.
9:11 am
mom2han8

He said that the Toshiba's are decent.
9:11 am
Rushie

That isn't bad Pini
9:11 am
Rushie

Make sure it's XP though
9:11 am
Pinikula

my desktops are custom built...I'm not all that keen on proprietary systems...
9:11 am
Pinikula

has Vista on it now, Rushie...but I have acceess to XP
9:12 am
mom2han8

Well... it will be our only computer so I think I have to go with 4GB Mem
9:12 am
Rushie

Ah, dump the Vista and make sure XP is on it
9:12 am
Rushie

Because the reason being is Vista is a glitchy slower version of XP, and uses twice as much RAM
9:12 am
Pinikula

$749 = 4G Mem; 320GB HD
9:13 am
mom2han8

Pini... yeah that is why my brother in law said to stay away from Dell... I guess because they can't just pop things in and out when I need upgrading/replacing, etc.
9:13 am
Pinikula

...and I don't particulary care for Vista anyway...too new and such a hassle
9:13 am
mom2han8

I definitely do NOT want Vista.
9:13 am
dafunk

windows 7 is coming out soon
9:13 am
mom2han8

I think I can definitely get one in the 800 - 900 range.
9:13 am
dafunk

i think quarter 1 of 2010
9:13 am
Rushie

Eh, I wouldn't advise getting it though
9:14 am
Pinikula

Me either...I have a Toshiba laptop, but have never put it on the internet because it has my genealogy on it...
9:14 am
dafunk

i have the beta version
9:14 am

Looks like I could sure use clues for all of them... I'll stare at them for awhile and then go away for a while and then come back for a while. It's a valid strategy. And I'm likely to pounce on the first person to de-lurk. *Lies in wait behind a rock...*

The worst part, really, is that he'll now have to miss this yearly set of charity walks he's been really looking forward to.
12:52 pm
stidmama

LOL I had it REALLY bad when I was a child, had my kids vaccinated. One got it, one didn't -- the one who didn't later turned out to be NOT immune. That's the one who's going to Australia this summer, so we had his re-done.
12:52 pm
MonkeyGames

Is it me, Katie? I think it's me.
12:52 pm
stidmama

My birthday is sometime... *avoiding obviousness* soon.
12:53 pm

mine is wednesday :-)
12:53 pm

The vacc still seems to be linked to later shingles and is not always efefctive... it's not used here.
12:53 pm
KatieMcG

Oh no Monkey it is most certainly me!
12:53 pm
MonkeyGames

Happy advance birthday both of you!
12:53 pm
stidmama

shingles comes with vaccine or with actual disease. My fever was dangerously high as a child... I still remember the hallucinations. That's why we had our boys get the vaccination.
12:54 pm
MonkeyGames

That makes sense to me, Stid. I had chicken pox when I was 15. My step father hadn't, so I got to be shut away in my room with no human contact for 2 weeks. Trust me, that was heaven under the home circumstances at the time.
12:55 pm
KatieMcG

Better dash BBQ nearly ready and hubby need help, bbs

12:56 pm

they were frightfully scary, Monkey. I had nightmares for years afterward
12:56 pm
MonkeyGames

It's OK now. But I do feel I may have had a better start in life if I'd had, well, a better start in life...
12:56 pm
MonkeyGames

Oh no, Stid, that's awful!
12:57 pm
stidmama

yes, I understand that. It is a mark of your endurance and strength though, that you have done well in life afterward.
12:57 pm
stidmama

I look at my trials as having helped form me -- though I would not wish them on others, they do help me understand people whose misfortunes sometimes are too much to bear.
12:58 pm
stidmama

how is your grandfather doing? I was thinking of Sam on Saturday when my friend was giving her talk on jellyfish at the local college's science carnival. He would have LOVED her presentation.

1:05 pm
stidmama

okay, thanks. my dog has been out of control lately, he so resents my being away from home all the time. We really need to get him a companion dog... but right now time and money are both at premiums, so it's not likely.
1:05 pm
sprite

no, and if you get a second dog, you will need a lot of time to train the new one and keep the old one content. *hugs*
1:06 pm

yep, exactly. *more hugs* I have so missed seeing you!
1:06 pm

1:13 pm
stidmama

my younger one came up behind me a few days ago when I was at at his school and spoke. I didn't know who it was until I turned around! *old mama look* his voice has started to turn! (and it was already quite deep and husky)
1:13 pm
sprite

ohhhh wow! Same here, Tim's voice is actually lower than my love's atm (when it is not a couple of octaves higher).
1:14 pm
stidmama

WOW! split the difference? LOL do they have the same inflection too? my Tom and the younger stidkid sure do, I have to check now when I call the house to know who I am talking to.
1:15 pm
sprite

absolutely. And Tim is about a full head bigger than I, can you believe it? Must look up at him.
1:15 pm
stidmama

hm. down to 35. I think I will pause here and eat before I rush off to class. *nibbling on choclits* balanced diet, you know!
1:16 pm
sprite

good! Chocolate is brain food. You need it.
1:16 pm
stidmama

yes, the stidkid has paused for several months at about 5-10, but may be poised to go higher still. Though when I bought him shoes yesterday he hadn't grown his "tootsies" that much more.

no doubt, sprite. Things are rarely completely settled around me -- I have so many ideas and plans...

I'll head out and let you girls chat for a while. ((hugs sprite)) ((hugs monkey)) Love you both and hope I see you again SOON... (like, next week when I don't have so many classes to attend).

MonkeyGames

Yes, the poor litte fellow is just covered in spots and has intermittent high fevers. He's generally miserable but can be cheered up for periods, especially by a bucket of water out on the deck.
1:27 pm
sprite

two friends of mine once said it very clearly, lol. One said: she makes things change and happen. And the other said: yes, the things that need changing most, and you want changing least.
1:27 pm
MonkeyGames

I'll sure try, Stid! Happy birthday soon again! Have a good one!
1:28 pm
sprite

stiddie, will think of you as always, enjoy the classes and be proud of you! *hugssssssss*

if you can keep his temp reasonably in the middle and his fingers from the pox, things will be better very soon.
1:29 pm
MonkeyGames

Yeah, we'll get through it. Luckily he has no itching yet. And he responds well to paracetamol.
1:30 pm
MonkeyGames

But he has to miss the avondvierdagse, and he has been really looking forward to it.
1:30 pm
sprite

my awfully impossible son came home and apologised for his misbehaviour in a very sincere way. Yay for the kid :)
1:30 pm
sprite

poor little Monkey. But you will cheer him up... and he learns again that he cannot always have what he wants, though he can try to want what he gets ;)
1:30 pm
MonkeyGames

I haven't heard about this-- what'd he do? Great that he apologized, and nicely at that!
1:31 pm
MonkeyGames

True, true. I'll get down to work with him on a book we're doing and he'll be distracted. He "wrote" the story and I will illustrate it and bind it into a real book for him.
1:32 pm
sprite

lol I didn't tell, nothing big, just very bad behaviour (including almost breaking a window out of sheer rage). I was really mad at him, and he just came home and told me I was right and he was sorry. That is something, isn't it, for a 13 yo.
1:32 pm
MonkeyGames

Yes indeed. The first part is because he's a teenager, the second part is because he's good natured and well brought up. Well done!
1:33 pm
sprite

yeah, he is ok, I was just making fun earlier. I love him to bits.
1:33 pm
sprite

and thanks for the compliment :)
1:33 pm
MonkeyGames

I know you do. And he yhou.
1:34 pm
sprite

oh yes. It is actually funny to see how amazed he can be at his own misbehaviour. They often really don't KNOW why they act up, do they... all those hormones rule.
1:35 pm
MonkeyGames

Don't I know it! I remember being a teenager. I knew everything and was always right and everyone was always trying to make me get upset.
1:37 pm
sprite

hm I remember it being hell, but that was because it was, kind of, at home. Getting together with my sister again has made so much clear, sad as it is, but clear isn't bad.
1:38 pm
MonkeyGames

It WAS hell!!!! But I still knew I was right about everything. And that everybody else hated me. Especially mom.
1:38 pm
sprite

sheezzz that sounds vague. Sorry. I just mean, it is better to know for sure and get it behind you, than being unclear about your past.
1:38 pm
sprite

and did she? Your mom I mean? Or did you just think so?
1:39 pm
MonkeyGames

I understood. And you're right.
1:39 pm
sprite

thanks
1:40 pm
MonkeyGames

At times she did. I moved out at 15 when she said she wished I had never been born because I accidentally stepped on the edge of the pile of clothes we were giving to charity. But she's on the right medication now and we get along OK, as long as we aren't around each other much. She's really a great lady... just shouldn't have been in any kind of relationship with anyone back then.
1:41 pm
sprite

painful. But great that you managed to connect to her later in life in some way.
1:41 pm
sprite

yay, fireworks. *hugs* to you and little Monkey, and see you soon.
1:42 pm
MonkeyGames

It was for Walter. I was pregnant and didn't want him to see the kind of fake out relationship she had with her mom that always made me so uncomfortable. She doesn't really remember those days now anyway so I can put it all beghind me.
1:42 pm
MonkeyGames

YAY for your fireworks! Come for a barbecue soon!
1:43 pm
sprite

good for you. And we will, let us know. Bye :)
1:43 pm

[Q] From Helen Norris: Any ideas on the origins of the expression nitty-gritty? I heard today a rather horrible suggestion that it referred to the debris left in the bottom of slave ships after their voyages, once the slaves remaining alive had been removed.

[A] This belongs in the same class of folklore which holds that a picnic was a slave lynching party. There is the very slightest of links, in that nitty-gritty was originally a Black American English expression, and some writers have guessed that nitty-gritty is a euphemism for shitty. Apart from those tenuous associations, the evidence is all against the theory.

The first known example in print has recently been found by Fred Shapiro of Yale University, in the Pittsburgh Courier of 29 June 1940: “Any convention goes lacking when that Joe Louis clenches his fists, put on the gloves, and steps into the ring in his pretty satin trunks and whips another guy down in the ‘nitty-gritty.’” The expression is almost certainly older (I know of two people who claim to have come across it in the 1920s). But it’s inconceivable that it should have been around since slave-ship days without somebody writing it down. Its meaning — the fundamental issues, the heart of the matter, or the most important aspects of some situation — also doesn’t suggest a connection.

Its origins are elusive. One explanation is that it is a reduplication — through the same mechanism that has given us namby-pamby and itsy-bitsy — of the standard English gritty. This has a literal sense of containing or being covered with grit, but figuratively means showing courage and resolve, so a link with the modern sense is plausible. A less probable explanation was suggested, in a 1974 issue of American Speech, the journal of the American Dialect Society, that nits refers to head lice and grits to the corn cereal.

None of these are supported by any firm evidence, and it’s this lack of a clear origin that has contributed to the wide distribution of the slave-ship story.

I'm being 'an evil stepmother' right now, still being up, which means I probably won;t be up to walk my stepdaughter up to her new school (her 2nd day) later. She needs to know we trust her and to go there for herself. I've made her lunch stuff and left a note to say I'll meet her from school to take her to our local library (that I joined her into yesterday morning).
